Looking for begonias north of border

dazlr(z5ontario)September 21, 2013

Good morning all, I live up in Ontario Canada and have been looking at some of the new begonias at Terra Nova. They are so beautiful and I rather like the foliage just as much or more than the flowers :).
I was wondering if any of you would happen to know of any places up here in Canada that have mail order and ship begonias. Can't buy them from the US.
Do any of the begonias grow from seeds ? Or just tubers.
I have been a fan of heucheras but have found other foliage plants have really peaked my interest.
Thanks for any help you can give me

I buy my seeds from park or burpee. they are the wax begonias. a little hard to start but worth the effort.
